We still don’t have a launch date for Apple Watch, but if you can’t wait to line up at Apple Stores for Jony Ive’s timepiece, you can now do that next best thing and buy a knockoff on eBay.

Earlier this morning, an eBay listing for a “prototype Apple Watch” sold in just hours for $260. The seller claims it’s an Apple prototype obtained from a cousin who works at Apple, but the sticker on the front and cheap leather band give it away as an obvious fake.

Here’s a look at the listing:


We saw a ton of fake Apple Watches at CES in the Shenzhen section  so we doubt this will be the last fake Apple Watch that goes on eBay before the real deal finally hits stores. You can already get a number of crappy Android smartwatch knock offs on eBay. Instead of buying one on eBay though, you could just go straight to the merchants peddling Apple Watch knockoffs on Alibaba.
